Day 826: Duet

First, I should clarify:  Pie Night is when a group of my friends get together at Village Inn on Wednesday night to take advantage of their free pie.  Order anything, and you get a free slice of pie with it.  So, I always order whatever sounds good to me (last night it was onion rings and they stopped sounding good after the first two--hooray for pregnant hormones!) and get the pie to go.

And I bring it home to HH.

He loves pie and cannot get enough of it.

Anyway, today started off rough.  Getting out of bed is always a challenge.  Well, these days, anyway.  I'm normally quite the morning person.  But this pregnancy has brought me to an entirely new level of exhaustion.  Awesome.

Getting out of bed after being out late for Pie Night was even more challenging.  And then both boys immediately started crying at breakfast.  For very different, albeit silly (in my opinion), reasons.  Good start to the day.

But we survived.

Although, that was kind of the theme for the day.  We just "survived" it.

All the more reason why I'm grateful for days like yesterday to remind me that it is possible to feel happy without amazing things happening.  And that I will get back to being happy the majority of the time again.  Just probably not while I have this cute little thing growing in my tummy.

Anyway, tonight was Sweet P's violin lesson.  They're gearing up for the recital next month.  This time she is playing a duet with her instructor.

And it sounds SO good!  Every time I hear it, I want to cry.

Tonight she did fabulously well and it was definitely my Joyful Moment.  I'm so proud of her and all of the hard work she puts into this.  Pretty impressive for someone so young.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are so beautiful you want to cry!

We can't wait to hear them! I'm sure we WILL cry.

I went out for a jog this morning - I am too slow to call it a run - and got to visit with one of my older neighbors whose wife is in a care center. And tonight I visited some with one of our neighbors. My JM is that we live in a neighborhood where people are warm and friendly.

Mom--I'm so excited you'll get to!

And way to go! I'm glad you're happy where you're at, too.
